“Comfortable and cosy cottage.”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Lovely cottage in a peaceful setting. The garden was delightful, although the weather did not allow for full enjoyment it was lovely to look out onto. Oaklea provided a great base for us, with ease of access to Inverness and the area and Liz was a great host. We are looking forward to staying again in the future.

“Fantastic base”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Gem of a place, ideal as a base for visiting local family in our case but just as good for roaming further afield as easy to get to the train and major roads. Lovely little welcome note and goodies on arrival and everything we needed. Definitely plan on returning in the future.

“A Charming Wee Cottage”
Reviewed January 22, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Arrived at this wonderful little cottage to find the heating already on and a welcoming note from Elizabeth the owner and a little insight on what was happening in the village over our weekend stay, which we thought was a lovely touch. The cottage is well equipped with everything you will need for your stay. Its a perfect base for any activity you may Get up to in the Moray Firth area, with ours being football on this occasion. I can highly recommend this quaint cottage as we will definitely try and stay here again when visiting Inverness-shire, A weekend was just not long enough.

“Absolutely wonderful cottage”

What a perfect little gem in the highlands. So very beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, very careingly and thoughtfully equiped with all the 'home from home' goodies one could wish for - just wonderful. We only stayed for 3 nights but could have happily stayed for longer - we WILL be back - thank you so very much Liz.
